Humax USB Wi-Fi Dongle
Easy to install & works fine - maybe Humax should build in?

Simple to use
I bought the dongle with a new Humax PVR (HDR-FOX T2 1TB Freeview+ HD Digital TV Recorder).
Plugged it in the back - ignored the handbook and the CD (which wasn't needed).
Set up from the screen menu was very quick and easy - only needed my password for my wireless router. Worked first time.
Note: it is only as fast as your broadband connection. Mine is fairly slow but it was no worse than accessing YouTube or BBC iPlayer from a computer.

I Bought this W-LAN adaptor at the same time I bought a Humax T2, at first I was unsure about it after reading the Reviews but after being reassured by the sales person that if it did not function I could return it decided to try it out. On arriving home first I installed the Humax-T2 and then followed the Quick Installation Guide for the150N Adaptor, of all the items bought concerning video and wireless equipment these two are light years ahead of the rest.

Let down by documentation
It's impossible to review this product because I have so far failed to get it to work.
It comes with a quick set-up guide, which is straightforward but not helpful when things go wrong, and a manual on disc , which has a bewildering amount of technical information.
When inserted into the Humax recorder the dongle was recognised at once, found my wireless network with no problem, and correctly identified the correct security information. I then set about entering the required password, which went well until I reached the last character. This happens to be'c', requiring three presses of the remote 2 button. At this point I failed, because only my first press was registered, entering 'a', after which no change was
possible. I expect I shall eventually solve this. Let you know.

Not what I hoped for
Had been hoping that it would give flexible access to the internet or at least access to most of the "catch up" TV sites. In that respect it was a disappointment as only iPlayer was pre-programmed
